Atlanta Mart Influencer Panel

LaurenComment

Last week I had the tremendous honor of speaking on a panel with three other influencers from around the Southeast at Atlanta Apparel. We discussed influencers and technology in front of an audience of store owners and buyers from around the country.

The best part about this experience was that these three girls are real-life friends and girl-bosses that I totally respect! It was so fun to share the stage with these beauties.

As a panel, we discussed how retailers can most effectively work with influencers, how retailers can provide their customers with a personalized shopping experience and superior service and where technology is trending in the world of online shopping and e-commerce!

We also hit on Spring trends and what we are most looking forward to wearing in the coming months. We all agreed on loving the color of the year, Coral, and looking forward to bold prints, florals, white accessories and lots of textured and wicker handbags coming back!

Atlanta Apparel benefits people from all over the Southeast, from buyers to exhibiters. Categories at the mart include contemporary, young contemporary, ready-to-wear, fashion accessories and more, plus specialty categories such as children's, plus-size, bridal and social occasion.

Did you know that Atlanta Apparel is not just open to shops and buyers? Three “cash and carry” floors are open to the public anytime. You can apply online to register for a pass and shop anytime Atlanta Apparel is open! After speaking, the four of us enjoyed a shopping spree at the cash and carry jewelry shop Golden Stella where I scored a bag-full of super-affordable and fun accessories!

I received SO many questions about my dress on Instagram last week. It’s really the perfect shirt dress and a versatile piece to wear Spring, Summer and/or Fall. It looks great worn with or without a belt, and I have located it several places on sale. {See links below.} I am wearing a size Small and highly recommend! It’s also now ON SALE!

A big thank you to Atlanta Apparel for inviting me to be a part of this influencer panel! It was such a joy and honor to be a part and I hope to do it again! Thank you, also, to all the buyers and shop-owners who came out to listen and learn. It was so fun meeting many of you!

Stylishly yours,

Amazon February Faves

LaurenComment

Happy Friday, friends!

My Amazon posts are quickly becoming favorites around here, and it’s no surprise because Amazon has SO many amazing fashion deals these days!

As I type this, two Amazon boxes just arrived at my door, so be sure to head over to my Instagram stories @laurenlefevre today and this weekend to see me highlight some of these pieces “live” on stories.

Without further ado, here are my February Amazon favs. I own and love each of these pieces, and they are all so perfect to wear now into Spring! {The bathing suit and cover up will have to wait to wear, unless you have a tropical winter vacation planned! But, I recommend snagging both now before they sell out!}

February Amazon (1).jpg
  1. Core 10 High-Waisted Yoga Pants, These are soft and buttery, high-waisted and feel like they “suck it all in!” I am loving this light purple for Spring! I ordered a size small, for reference, and the fit is just right.

  2. Converse Lift Low-Top Sneaker. I have wanted these kicks ever since they were on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last July! {They sold out immediately and never were re-stocked.} I am SO excited to finally find them on Amazon Prime, just $64 and available in several colors. I also am really loving the light pink for Spring, and may have to add those to my sneaker collection soon!

  3. Floral Swimsuit. This adorable suit reminds me of one of my all-time favorite Trina Turk suits {that I paid over $100 for!}. This one is just $21.99 and super-flattering. I ordered a size small.

  4. Tassel Earrings. When I find a pretty pair of $8.99 tassels, I know it’s time to stock up! I’m all about white statement earrings for Spring, and these are lightweight perfection. These come in lots of colors, too!

  5. Core 10 Tie-Tank. I love back-tie tanks for yoga and barre and this $23 one is perfect! I ordered a small in the Gray, and am planning to order the Lavender one, too. I think I may size up to a medium on the next one for a slightly slouchier fit!

  6. Platform Espadrille Wedges. These look SO much like a pair of Chloe wedges I have been coveting since last year! These are just $37.99 and come in several colors. I ordered the khaki and cannot wait for them to arrive! I will be sure to report back when they do.

  7. Cable & Pearl Bracelet. This Yurman-look alike looks so good it’s hard to believe it’s $18.99!

  8. Tassel Beach Cover-Up. How cute is this $15.99 coverup?! It comes in a dozen colors. I picked one up in white for for Spring Break and the fit is perfect!

  9. Native Audrey Flats. I wore my sister-in-law’s Native flats while in Nashville last month and loved them! These are water-proof and so comfy! I bought the black, but these come in several colors. I am also loving the blush pink for Spring! Oh, and they are only $55!

If you order any of these pieces and love them, please shoot me of pic of how you are styling them via email at lauren@editbylauren.com or Instagram message. {Or just tag me on your post!} I would love to share your Amazon favs with everyone!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Stylishly yours,

The Essential White Blouse + Why You Need One in February

LaurenComment

Anthropologie blouse | AG jeans | Gucci belt | similar earrings | Gucci bag | Able shoes | Quay sunglasses

If you are anything like me, I find the months of February and March the most difficult and un-inspiring to dress in! It’s the time of year when I feel “over” my winter clothes and am longing for Spring, yet most days are too cold to actually dress for Spring. I also feel tired of dark colors and heavy layers during this pre-Spring season.

My answer to “what to wear” right now for pretty much any occassion is a white blouse. A fun white blouse can be worn day or evening, to the office or to dinner, dressed up or down and accessorized in innumerable ways. It can be layered on chilly days with a faux-fur vest or leather jacket, and even tucked into a skirt for a totally different look!

This Anthropologie blouse was a recent purchase and I have literally worn it about 5 times in the past two weeks! I’ve worn it for a lunch date, a dinner date and a school parent meeting, and worked for all of them! It’s a bit of a splurge, but 100% a wardrobe piece that can be worn season after season, year after year. It’s simply gorgeous! I am wearing a size small.

Two other white blouses I am loving are ::

This one by Joseph A that is perfect for layering now and wearing alone for Spring. Get it for 50% off {$14.99!!} and Free Shipping with code EBL50! I am wearing a size small.

This Free People blouse is a soft tee-shirt-like material and it another favorite purchase this season. It’s on MAJOR SALE {$39} and only available in a few sizes, so act fast if you like it. I am wearing a size small.

Here are a few other versatile white blouses to shop ::

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Thank you for your LOVE and support all year round. I am so grateful for each of you!

XO,
